Blackline’s Satellite Innovation Shifts Status Quo in Safety
Calgary, AB– Blackline GPS (TSX Venture: BLN), a Calgary-based manufacturer of lone worker safety solutions, is launching a new product that will revolutionize emergency response times in the world of safety. The launch event will take place on Thursday, June 19th from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Saltlik Steakhouse, located at 101 – 8th Avenue SW, Calgary. Members of the media and industry leaders are invited to attend this event to gain hands-on experience with this latest technological innovation. Two years in the making, the Loner® Bridge System is industry’s first, purpose-built solution that, unlike competitive products, works everywhere that today’s remote employees work – indoors, outdoors, within, and beyond cellular networks.
“This year in Canada, roughly 1,000 employees will not be coming home from work,” says Sean Stinson, Blackline’s VP Product Management. “To date, companies have been limited to manual check-in systems that cannot detect incidents promptly and products that communicate via satellite but lack automatic detection and cannot work indoors.”
“With Loner Bridge, we’ve taken worker protection beyond the geographical limits of cellular networks,” says Barry Moore, VP Product Development at Blackline. “The flexibility and portability of our entire system means we can provide a complete solution for companies to protect all of their field employees in real-time regardless of their location.”
Blackline’s Loner Bridge System is a true last-mile solution comprised of two parts – a Loner Bridge portable satellite base station and an intrinsically safe Loner 900 safety monitoring device. The Loner Bridge portable base station can be moved from a truck to an all-terrain vehicle in seconds and manages satellite communications to Blackline’s monitoring infrastructure. An industrial-quality radio link to the employee-worn Loner 900 device delivers up to 3 km of real-world operating range. The Loner Bridge System also works with Blackline’s indoor location technology, enabling an organization to pin-point and respond immediately to any employee emergency situation.
Media and industry leaders are invited to register to attend the unveiling of Blackline’s Loner Bridge System on Thursday, June 19th, any time between 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. To register visit: www.blacklinesafety.com/event.
